Maryland's Voter Registration Up 10 Percent
Maryland has 3.4 million registered voters as of today, an increase of about 10 percent from the presidential election of 2004, according to figures released by the State Board of Elections.
The figures record those residents who registered before the Oct. 14 deadline for the Nov. 4 presidential election.
The state's more than 300,000 new voters are mostly Democrats, who now number 1.9 million, compared to 1.7 million four years ago, statistics show. There are 926,348 Republicans registered today, up from 907,493 in 2004.
Baltimore saw a 20 percent increase in the number of registered voters. Prince George's County also appears to be source of a late surge in new voters. A total of 28,200 new voters registered in the county between Sept. 30 and last week's deadline, for a total of 494,859.
